Summary: A female vampire from the planet Arus tries to vampirize the descendants of Dr. Fun Helsing.

The vampire hunters soon find themselves "sucked" into a whirlpool of lust and passion...
Note: - First film of "no-budget" director Carl Andersen (credited as Zaphod Beeblebrox in the movie, and as Bjorn Caro Anderson on the video cover), who said about his debut: "I find it much too trashy, but I like it somehow (the sex-scenes mostly)".
- Notorious for his combination of punk rock, German expressionism, and hardcore porn, the director's favourite theme is the desire for love, sex, and the fear of too much of it.
- Ronnie Urini is a famous Austrian underground/punk musician, who has played with musicians from The Doors, The Ramones, and The Velvet Underground.

short review:

Well, what should be said about this piece of minimalistic cineatic art? Not much I have to admit. The Vampire-theme in this particular movie is limited to the fact that in one scene a guy bites a woman in the neck (fangs? No, why should vampires have fangs!!), she dies and rises again. The whole movie is one big orgy, with some realistic hardcorescenes (realistic in the way, that it doesn't look overacted). The "vampires" look more like zombies in a 3rd class college-theatre. The only thing resurrected in this movie are the 80s. This is IMHO the only positive part in this ueberminimalistic flick: it gives a glimpse into the real 80s for all of you who have survived this time still lying in cradles.
